Although the Porsche 986 is often overlooked, it truly is one of the biggest driving forces behind the modern roadster market. Without it, who knows that the roadster market would be like today. By today’s standards it is relatively weak at 220 horsepower, but some simple modifications this can be increased to the more respectable number. Back in 2014 VR Tuned developed a tune for the 986 Boxster 2.7L and it’s still selling strong today.
  • Stock Horsepower: 220HP
  • VR Tuned Horsepower: 238HP
The installation process is pretty simple and quick, especially for the amount of power you gain. Connect a Windows-powered laptop (For Mac owners you’ll need to dual boot into Windows), follow all the instructions, upload the tune file to your ECU, and enjoy a massive gain of 18 horsepower. On top of the increased power is much-improved throttle response that will make your 986 feel much faster off the line and while pulling out of a corner. Recently a customer of ours came down to the Vivid HQ in Gilbert, Arizona, to have the ECU on their 986 flashed. Here are a couple of pictures! If you have any questions about VR Tuned ECU Flash for Porsche 986 Boxster or would like to purchase parts for your Porsche, please do not hesitate to contact us.
